Grateful Dead Live at Riverport Amphitheatre on 1995-07-06
Audience (Schoeps MK-4V/ Sony D-10) Master DAT> CDR> MKW> SHN; via Troy Richey from Chuck's seed discs
Subject: background vocals
We referred to Vince as 'Wince', need I say more.
Been on the bus since '73 and i'm trying hard to appreciate their '90s sound. The history of the GD is that they were constantly evolving, morphing and changing every tour till the bitter end
I saw eyes when it debuted and sadly, i'm listening to the last time it was preformed. Quiet down there, wince.

The final 5 shows are really unique listening to when you know what’s coming. There’s some real soul being conveyed even amidst what many fans consider Garcia’s weaker moments performing. He still had it all the way till the end if you ask me, sure he was always ever changing. But that’s life, the only constant is change itself. Listening to Liberty today on the 76th anniversary of Jerry’s Bday (the night of Aug 1st) and what our country looks like today in 2018, it’s music like this that really soothes and feeds the soul, body and mind.
I get really into the minutiae of the stats and the first performance / last played / final performance type stuff. I like knowing when songs took long breaks and then returned or were played once or twice but never again etc. And with this music and this database there’s a whole galaxy of that stuff with The Grateful Dead. I’m grateful to be able to take these musical journeys and do a little sonic time traveling and sociological sub-cultural contextual archaeology. Not to mention all the face melting mind blowing psychedelia and the infinite myriad of styles, textures, approaches and sounds that the boys embodied and exhibited and explored within and without through the decades. And the music continues to live on, with all of us!
Let’s be real creatures of change and embody the freedom and liberty that the music and be community symbolizes and let it shine on those who are unfortunate enough not to be as groovy as you, turn on your lovelight my American (and Global) Beauties, let it shine let it shine let it shine.

GOd bless the GD, the Archive and all that sails her.
Subject: Discrepancies in song labeling
This was my final Grateful Dead show and I would appreciate a better (and complete!) version of it -- either a good SBD or a crispy AUD. My email is subject to change soon, so email me at my mother's email (email@example.com) and in the Subject line just state something like "This is for your son, Fred Wagner". That way she won't discard it like spam. Thanks for any leads!
BTW, I've already emailed the person who did the transfer on this show (and assumably the uploading) and let him know about the discrepancies in song labeling and the missing "Drums". Hopefully he'll correct it for future downloaders.
I only gave this show 1 star because of the discrepancies. The sound quality rates higher than that. Peace.
as for this gig...nothing that great and another cassidy first set closer which used to irk me to death

Subject: 90's negatives
The folks can say what they want about the 90's being bad or all of the new tunes being lame.
To me, that's just a deadhead who's ears have hit the wall though. The band was perhaps more expansive and creative in the 90's than anything from the second half of the 80's easily. I'm guessing Mr. Lesh, Mr. Wier and Co. would not agree with much the late era naysayers think. Much less Garcia, who was at his most expansive and soulful right to the last show.
Subject: Big Boss Man
Most of those new songs were so bad like Long Way,Easy Answers,Corina and Samba my God. Although I love So Many Roads and Days Between was pretty good.
Subject: better than most (95')
Subject: Nice AUD
